Sideways Bike: Surfing the Streets

Apparently today is off-topic post day. But this is far too weird and bicycle related not to post:
This crazy contraption is Michaels Killian's Sideways Bike. Killian is a software engineer in Dublin, Ireland and he came up with the idea while tinkering in his shed. A complex multi-stage chain transmission takes care of driving the wheels, and steering is done by moving the front and back wheels independently. To stop the rider slipping off, a unicycle saddle is used.

Of course. Perhaps we can race these.
